TI  - First isolation of Leishmania infantum by blood culture in bovines from endemic
      area for canine visceral leishmaniasis.

AB  - Leishmaniasis is considered a parasitic disease that still causes serious
      consequences for mankind, because it presents a high mortality rate worldwide.
      Considered multi-hosts, the parasites of the genus Leishmania are able of
      infecting a wide variety of animal species. The dog was considered the main
      source of infection of visceral leishmaniasis (VL), in the urban area. However,
      the role of other animal species in the epidemiological cycle of the disease,
      such as cattle, remains unclear. Therefore, the aim of the present study was to
      evaluate the occurrence of Leishmania spp. in 100 bovines (Bos taurus) from an
      area endemic for canine VL, using blood culture and molecular analysis. By the
      sequencing analysis, one sample showed 100% similarity with Leishmania infantum. 
      The results provide the first case of L. infantum isolation in one bovine from
      the periurban areas of Bauru, state of Sao Paulo, Brazil.
